About Veterans Court:

Veterans Treatment Courts are an alternative to incarceration and other types of sanctions. Veterans Treatment Courts empower Veterans enabling them to obtain treatment, take accountability for their actions, receive treatment if necessary, and restore structure to their lives while resolving their criminal charges. These programs provide the necessary support that is required; however, it still requires the Veteran to follow a strict regimen, reminiscent of their prior military experience.


Veterans interested in enrolling in the Veterans Treatment Court Program must consult with their attorney, then complete and forward an application to the Veterans Court coordinator so an intake can be scheduled.
